The Dash is in

The dash, heater core, blower motor, gauge cluster, ECU, fuel filler assembly, window net, quick disconnect, and steering wheel are all back in the car! Yay!  The car starts! Yay!  One issue, the gauge cluster gets power, but half of the indicators aren't working.  I'm thinking I have a bad ground or blown fuse, that is next on the to-figure-out-why-no-worky list.  Messed around with a house lamp to create some interestingly-lit photos, see below.

Cage is painted

Finished painting the cage last night.  I originally wanted the interior to be orange or bright green, but I didn't want to shell out a lot of money to have it sprayed, so I went with Rustoleom Hammerite roll on direct to metal paint.  They only offer a white, black and silver for this specific grade of paint and a black interior in Florida would suck.  White is lame.  So I went with silver.  I think it turned out pretty good.   Now I am trying to figure out how to put everything back in and where it all goes.

Surf's up!

Little off topic, but I recently bought a GoPro and began recording some of my surf sessions.  Here is the first crop sans any real editing.   Also this website only allows a lower resolution, full HD shiz on the way.
